646 RBTs and three drink drivers
DESPITE heavy traffic on the Bruce Hwy as holiday makers made their way home, Childers police say drivers were “reasonably” well behaved with 21 infringement notices issued.
Childers police officer-in-charge Sergeant Geoff Fay said that from New Year’s Eve until Sunday night officers conducted 646 random breath tests and caught three drink drivers and one drug driver.
“There were two minor traffic incidents with no injuries... three unregistered and uninsured drivers and two unlicensed drivers,” Sgt Fay said.
He said with a significant number of motorists heading home after the extended long weekends it was disappointing some drivers continued to ignore the fatal five but on the whole most were doing the right thing.
“There was a lot of traffic ... drivers were reasonably well behaved except for a few,” he said.
